Gernot Faber is a fictitious personality created in 2006 by the Hamburg
artists Sebastian Reuss (b. 1974) und Lutz Krüger (b. 1972).
In Gernot Faber, Reuss and Krüger have found an ingenious way to
create aesthetically exciting installations while at the same time, on a
conceptual level, posing radical questions about the conditions for
»making art« and »being an artist«. Against the background of the
institutional art world’s mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion, their
productions explore authentic creativity.
